Adrien Darodes

Senior Consultant

Currently based in Burkina Faso, Adrien is working with local food and beverage companies on the marketing and distributing of quality fortified foods. He is working in partnership with NGOs, research institutes and marketing agencies to tailor these products to low-income women and children’s needs.

His experience since joining Hystra in 2016 included strategy consulting for inclusive business initiatives of multinational corporations in the energy, consumer goods, and insurance sectors. Adrien also co-authored a report on business model innovation for energy access and supported several donor organizations in their private sector engagement strategy.

Adrien previously worked as a junior product manager at Saint-Gobain, a french multinational company that specializes in the production of construction materials, and for a poverty-alleviation NGO in the Philippines. This hybrid experience led him to embrace Hystra’s focus on scaling business innovations that have a social impact.

He holds a Masters of Science in Management from ESSEC Business School where he majored in social entrepreneurship after completing a post-graduate exchange program with the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad.
